This extension protects yourself against punycode domains phishing attacks.
This extension protects yourself against punycode domains phishing attacks that try to impersonate well known sites (including most banks online) by replacing some letters with the same character with a small dot bellow, that most people ignore/don't notice it. In a real phishing attack (using this method), the little dot may be confused with a dead pixel or some dust on the screen. As an example you may consider the following domain: http://www.xn--goldmasachs-1x8e.com/ Despict the small do bellow the lowercase N character, it might be easily confused with: http://www.goldmansachs.com/ This extension will provide a warning dialog every time the browser tries to open Urls domains that are punycode encoded, which may be used to trick the user.
